Tell EPA: Methane Pollution is Dangerous to Health
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a two-year delay of EPA’s methane rule, vital air pollution safeguards that protect all Americans from dangerous methane and hazardous air pollution.This EPA rule requires oil and gas facilities to monitor and fix leaks to prevent leakage of methane, a potent greenhouse gas and contributor to poor air quality. While the stay is in effect, industry does not have to comply with requirements outlined in the rule. This decision is a direct attack on clean air protections and action to address climate change, putting the health of Americans at risk.
EPA needs to hear directly from nurses on how this delay will impact health. The deadline for comments is August 9th. Click here for sample comments, that can be modified and personalized, in opposition to EPA’s proposed delay.
